So our situation in Iraq is not good. Here's the possible course of actions:

1. The troops do a great job and we fight down the insurgents. They come home, everyone's happy. (possible, but not likely).

2. More bloodshed, Bush orders more troops. Oops, there aren't anymore troops. Either backdown and declare a loss or start a draft. I'm betting Bush will opt for the draft since he never backs down. Good bye all 18-25 year old Hmong kids, if you didn't vote or voted for Bush then support him with your life.

So, the big question: how far are we from a draft? Here's something to think about. Right now, there's already a "backdoor draft". That's when someone who served their term and was supposed to come home gets booked for an extended stay in Iraq because we're short on men. What does that mean? Think about it. Short on men + can't back down = ?


So, will the nation allow a draft? No, but the nation can't stop one because Republicans now rule the House, Senate and Presidency. They can pass any bill they want.

Boy am I glad I'm over 25.
